Chronic Absenteeism Task Force

Governor Glenn Youngkin announced the Chronic Absenteeism Task Force, a key pillar of the comprehensive ALL IN VA plan to accelerate the learning loss recovery by addressing Attendance, Literacy and Learning. The Task Force, in response to a near doubling of chronic absenteeism in Virginia classrooms resulting from extended pandemic closure of schools, will develop resources and distribute action plans for school divisions to address the record-high student absenteeism rates across the Commonwealth.
